It Is Finished (Part 1)

A Promise For You From Bible Promises: [14/MAY/2019]

Topic: It Is Finished (Part 1)

When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed. his head, and gave up the ghost. John 19:30.

Read: John 17:1-9

During the excruciating pain on the cross to purchase the salvation of the world through His precious blood, Jesus cried aloud, “I thirst”. In response to His cry, He was given vinegar (sour wine) and When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head and gave up the ghost. When He said, it is finished He gave up the ghost leaving no explanation as to what is finished behind.

In verse 4 of John chapter 17, Jesus said, I have glorified thee on the earth: I have FINISHED the WORK which thou gavest me to do. What is the work He finished before giving up the ghost on the cross? Let’s look at three of this work, but today, we shall look at one.

1) The work of sin was finished. Sin (Satanic Identity Number) separated man from God in the garden of Eden and Matthew 1:21 says, “And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins”. 1 John 3:8 says the devil sinned from the beginning and this is the reason Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil which sin is one of them. It is finished means, Completed; ended; done; perfected. Sin is finished by Jesus, therefore sin should not have dominion over you anymore because whatever is finished is completely finished. Knowing that sin is finished is great but embracing this truth by giving your life to Jesus who has finished this is greater.

Bible Promises Thought:
Sin dominates its host. Salvation frees it willing candidates

MFM Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 16 May 2019 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – Gracious God

Published

on

TOPIC: Gracious God (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 16 May 2019)

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 2 Kings 24-25; John 5:1-24

FIRE SCRIPTURE: Hebrews 4:13-16

MEMORY VERSE: “Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:” – Romans 3:24

The MESSAGE:

Many Christians interpret the grace of God as the ‘Unmerited favour’ of God (Favour that we are not qualified to have; unearned love and favour given to man through God). In actual fact, God is a gracious God and grace actually means more than the Unmerited favour of God.

Grace is the application of Christ’s righteousness to the sinner; it is virtues proceeding from divine influence such as faith, meekness, humility, patience, generosity. It is spiritual power. It is gratitude. It is final salvation i.e. eternal life. It is a kindness, to say and do what is right. It is gratitude.

Beloved, it is time to tap into all the facets of grace that God has made available to us. He is kind, forgiving and merciful God. Come unto the throne of mercy that you may receive grace and as we no longer live under the old covenant when the ‘mercy seat’ made of pure gold was approached once a year on the day of atonement, but with the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ the mercy seat was changed to a throne of mercy. Jesus Christ was the perfect sacrifice that allows us to approach the throne of mercy. Because ‘by grace you have been saved through faith’ (Ephesians 2:8).

MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE:
THE GOOD THINGS OF LIFE ARE GOTTEN BY STRENGTH WHILE THE GREAT THINGS OF LIFE ARE GOTTEN BY GRACE.

PROPHETIC WORD:
May the grace of God abound in your life today and always.

PRAYER POINTS:

MORNING

My angel of blessing, locate me now, in the name of Jesus.
My angel of blessing will not go unless he blesses me, in the name of Jesus.
Lord, let my cries provoke angelic assistance, in the name of Jesus.
EVENING
Lord, give me the name that will bless and transform my life forever, in the name of Jesus.
Let every hindrance targeted at my angel of blessing, be dissolved, in the name of Jesus.
O Lord, deliver me from evil stones thrown at me by unfriendly friends, in the name of Jesus.
Every evil riot and rage against me, be disgraced, in the name of Jesus.

Giving that Honours God – Open Heaven 16 May 2019

Open Heaven 16 May 2019 Thursday Daily Devotional By Pastor E. A. Adeboye – Giving that Honours God

Topic: Giving that Honours God (Open Heaven 16 May 2019)

Memorise: “Honour the LORD with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase:”- Proverbs 3:9

Read: Genesis 22:10-18 (KJV)

10 And Abraham stretched forth his hand, and took the knife to slay his son.

11 And the angel of the LORD called unto him out of heaven, and said, Abraham, Abraham: and he said, Here am I.

12 And he said, Lay not thine hand upon the lad, neither do thou any thing unto him: for now I know that thou fearest God, seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine only son from me.

13 And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son.

14 And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovahjireh: as it is said to this day, In the mount of the LORD it shall be seen.

15 And the angel of the LORD called unto Abraham out of heaven the second time,

16 And said, By myself have I sworn, saith the LORD, for because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son:

17 That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;

18 And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.

Bible in One Year: Exodus 26-27, Jeremiah 36:4-19

Open Heaven 16 May 2019 Thursday MESSAGE:
Many of us desire the blessing of Abraham and this is a good thing. However, how many of us are ready to do the things Abraham did? Abraham gave gifts that honored God, so much that God swore by Himself to bless Him. After Abraham gave his very best on the altar of sacrifice, God said to him in Genesis 22:16-17:

“16 And said, By myself have I sworn, saith the LORD, for because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son: 17 That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;”

Our God is not a respecter of persons. If you can also honour Him with your giving, He is ready to give you a blessing that has everlasting value in return.

The most precious thing you can give to honour God is your life. Just as God demanded the son of promise as a burnt sacrifice from Abraham, so does He demand your life. He says to you today:

“My son, give me thine heart, and let thine eyes observe my ways.” – Proverbs 23:26

The devil is also struggling to have your heart so that he can thwart the great plans of God for your life. When you choose to give your heart to God, you have done Him a great honour, and you will find favour in His sight and in the sight of men (Proverbs 3:4). Another form of giving which honours God is found in today’s memory verse. Giving God the first fruits of your increase is an act of faith that brings delight to His heart. There is no ambiguity as to what we stand to gain from this. In Proverbs 3:10, He clearly says:

“So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine.”

Unfortunately, many Christians still argue against the doctrine of first fruits. Some say that it belongs to the Old Testament, and I ask them whether the Old testament is not part of God’s word to us. There are some pleasant promises of God we love which are only found in the Old Testament. We do not say we will not key into them because they are only in the Old Testament, so why ignore the doctrine of first fruit? Beloved, give God your best today. Honour Him by offering your spirit, soul and body to Him as a living sacrifice in holiness and acceptable service (Romans 12:1-2). I pray that the Lord will grant you grace to completely obey His command like Abraham the father of faith, did.

Open Heaven 16 May 2019 Thursday Prayer Point:
Father, please give me a heart of flesh that is receptive to keeping Your precepts.
